(1) 1970-09-03 San Diego, CA (AUD/Tarantura)
The taper captured a great sound with a great mix in this recording. The audio does not have a lot of change in the sound and the mix seems constant throughout the show. The mix allows you to hear the individual band members and their instruments and vocals. Plant sounds great and up front in the audio and his voice is really in fine shape. Page sounds excellent and easy to hear too. His guitar can be heard clean and clear all the way through the show.
The audio drops out (fades) after "Bring It On Home" and resumes during the talking (with Plant telling the people to calm down) before "That's The Way" begins. So no music was lost in this possible tape flip point of the show. I'm up to "Since I've Been Loving You" and the taper has been recording the show without stopping the tape (except for the one point I mentioned) so far.
I have just started listening to the second disc now. One thing I noticed in the waveform earlier is on disc two. The audio seems to be louder and there is some slight clipping in the waveform. I am not sure yet what the reason is for the spike in the waveform is just yet?. I had wondered if there may have been two sources used to complete the show, but I don't believe that is the case. While there is no audio clipping on disc one (it's slightly quieter), the sound is definitely louder and even cleaner sounding on disc two as it starts out.
"What Is And What Should Never Be" gets right to the last few seconds, it fade out and then comes back in just before "Moby Dick". This is the only point where any music is missing and it is very, very little missing at all.
The likelihood (I believe) is the same taper recorded the whole source recording here and he just tuned up the tape recorder a little during the audio heard on disc two. Otherwise, Tarantura made the audio on disc two a little louder?
This is a great recording of the show whatever the story is. Whether there are two sources used or one source, and this would be easy to determine with a little research, this is a great recording of this show 45 years ago today!
I hope you enjoy the show...
